My research spans areas ranging from robust control to wireless communication, model reduction for fluid flows and image processing, distributed control of networked systems, metric complexity theory, biological processes, power networks, energy efficient buildings, security, and power and performance management of virtualized web servers. Much of my research is focused on improving performance for these systems subject to modeling and disturbance uncertainties. My research is multidisciplinary as evidenced by the breath of my publications, single, and joint proposals. Some areas of interest:
- Robust and distributed control
- Information theory for uncertain channels
- Modeling, estimation and identification for wireless systems
- Control of networked systems
- Robust control of large power networks with high penetration of renewables
- Model reduction and control of fluid flows
